Lightbulb Cityjet-2

The Antwerp authorities just announced that a new operator for the London City to Antwerp route was selected. New operator will formaly announce the schedule any of these days. According to info in the press the airline would foresee 3 flights/day as from 29 October 2017. That would mean there is no interruption of service after Cityjet stopping the route the week before.

Is this Flybe by any chance? Good size aircraft, could stimulate the market a bit through lower fares compared to Cityjet, and don't mind a good subsidy or discount which ANR may have put on the table.

Could it be BA with the Saab 2000 ?

The thing that's either confusing or revealing (depending on which way you look at it) about this announcement is that the name of the carrier will only be announced next week. So bookings can't be made before that date even though the first flight is just over a month from today.

I don't think any of the established carriers (like Flybe or BA) would need a week to add a new destination to their booking engine. Which leads me to believe it's neither of those and we might actually be looking at VLM. Which knows the route well of course but doesn't have anything resembling a decent booking engine right now. Their site is very incomplete and still shows flights from Maribor that aren't bookable anymore. So they might indeed need a week to set something up for the ANR flights.

Apparently it's VLM. Maybe Cityjet will buy them back

Hi, i believe the SSJ100 needs modifications before it can be certified at LCY including installation of winglets. I am a little surprised it has taken as long as it has before the aircraft received these changes.

I'm amazed at the contraction of the CityJet network.
I know it's managed as they go to a more charter operation, but still... what a difference.

...the current route map is misleading, though. Apparently the seasonal routes will not resume and the three AMS-routes are code-shares operated by KLM. So there is just one route left, DUB-LCY - just like when they started 20 odd years ago.

And at one point they had ¿four? German routes as well.

It's a shame, they tried so hard to find a reason to exist as an airline in their own right, and they were willing to be innovative!

Cityjet have come through the worst of times, and arguably the best of times. In terms of their own schedules services, they have little in the way of a USP imho, and without scale nor differentiation, there wouldn't appear to be much of a future for schedule flying i their own rite. All that said they now have a nice operating niche on behalf of other airlines like SK, SN, KL and more to follow.. which is x much more sustainable than their schedules serviced. I wouldn't expect to see any new ops for WX brand on scheduled routes. This partly explains the lack off urgency in certifying the SSJ for LCY.

Does anyone else think that the failed tie up with Stobart air has maybe hurt them a little?

It's a shame it didn't go ahead I thought it might have worked well.

The SSJ flying the EI Regional brand would have had huge potential in Benelux, Germany, France etc.

Do we know how CityJet are getting on with the SSJs? A post in another thread alluded to issues?

Isn't that quite a normal thing for airlines to do?

More CRJS & Deal with Air France Hop!

Hi all, just read this re Cityjet and 7 more CRJs and a note about a deal with Air France for Hop! service.

Seems they are really focussed on the wet lease model now
